My faith looks up to Thee

1
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
  Savior Divine;
Now hear me while I pray;
Take all my guilt away;
Oh, let me from this day
  Be wholly Thine.
2
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
  My zeal inspire;
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm, and changeless be,
  A living fire.
3
While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
  Be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
  From Thee aside.
4
All thru life’s transient dream,
Until death’s sullen stream
  Shall o’er me roll,
Blest Savior, with Thy love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Make me Thy grace to prove
  Transform my soul.

As I work up early hours of this morning 5th Febuary to pray, this was the hymn that came to my mind. Many adversaries rise up daily against me at my place of work. And as I sang it I feel relieve in my Spirit that God has given me victory already because my faith is in Him and I also look up to Him always for help.

I woke up this morning knowing that only faith in Christ had kept me this far and this hymn came to mind.

I sang it on this media and what a blessing it had been.

My faith looking up to Christ through this month will see and help me conquer February ‘19 in joy and victory in Jesus’ name. Amen!!!

After my usual personal devotion time this morning this hymn rose unbidden in my soul. I remembered all the words of the first verse. It seemed like a miracle. I haven't sung it in many years.... I count this as God's presence with me. What a blessing.

I thank God for putting a song of worship and praise in my spirit while I'm down on my knees praying this morning. It is my prayer to Him, Who is my All and All.

This is a favourite hymn of mine. My Mother (now deceased), always sang this hymn as her way of praising Jehovah, and now I too do the same. It is so warm and comforting when either going through trials/storms or having overcome.
